Company Profile

Part of Theatre History

J.C Williamson

Scenic Studios Pty Ltd is a Melbourne based company and has been trading for over 38 years.

Born from the world famous J.C. Williamson's Theatre Company, Ross Turner and Paul Kathner started Scenic Studios Pty Ltd to continue to service the theatre industry.

This has been expanded and we have achieved our vision of a 'one stop' full service that encompasses our unique abilities. The Company now comprises three divisions - Scenic Studios, Visual Coatings and Scenic Hire.

With the expertise of these divisions we are able to offer our clients a full range of services that cater specifically to the theatre, exhibition, display, convention and museum and television industries.
